Leicester 1-2 West Brom

West Bromwich Albion ended Leicester City’s 20-match unbeaten home record in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory on Sunday.

Leicester’s impressive home streak was a catalyst to their 2015/16 PL title triumph, but James Morrison put the visitors in front on his first top-flight start since January.

The midfielder’s glancing header came seven minutes after a goalless first half, but the Foxes levelled when Islam Slimani nodded in Riyad Mahrez’s centre three minutes later.

Phillips then scored the winning goal with a deft chip over the onrushing Ron-Robert Zieler, who deputised for injured Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

West Brom are up to 11th place in the Premier League, one point and three positions above Leicester.
